"Seeing God in the Sweet Ordinary" is an art-filled devotional brimming with stories of God's faithfulness in the everyday struggles of life. It is the perfect size to gift in a stocking, carry in your purse, or display on your coffee table. It's meant to encourage and point people to Jesus. There are little prayers at the end of every chapter, along with colorful art that the Lord put on my heart to go with each theme in the book. No matter what we struggle with He is faithful and oh how He loves us SO!
This is an author SIGNED book!!!!
This collection is a "three years in the making" dream come true. During a trip to NYC in 2019, I saw the most unique handbag. It was made from a painting that was found at a flea market in Denmark. The bag was beaten up and beautiful, and I left that shop inspired to the core. I just KNEW I was supposed to use my gifts of painting and leather work, along with my love of vintage fabrics, to create something special just for you.
The Lord put the words "beautiful soul" in my heart; He gave me a seamstress named Rebecca to come alongside me, and here we are 3 years later with all my handbag dreams an actual reality. These are truly one-of-a-kind masterpieces. There are no two alike. Each bag is handpainted and the straps are stamped with words to inspire.

I've had a not-so-secret crush on pillows for years. There's no such thing as too many right? Well, I finally found the seamstress of my dreams and with her help, we've created the most luxuriously beautiful collection that I'm lovingly referring to as the "Crush Collection." Four of my favorite paintings have been printed on linen and filled with down inserts. We've added posh ball trim for a bit of fun. These are super soft and reversible.
Masterpiece - This painting was inspired by Monet's Chrysanthemums that I fell in love with in Paris. The vase is full of impasto-painted flowers. They are perfectly imperfect and so textural that you can almost touch them. Pillow Measures - 19x19. Cream crushed velvet back.
The Greenhouse - This structure on our property is simply magical. It's a sacred spot to breathe in the beauty of His creation. It was a joy to capture it. Pillow Measures - 19x19, Cream crushed velvet back.
Tisha's View - My dear friend, who has struggled with the loss of many family members, inspired this painting. Taken from one of her Instagram posts I painted this for her. I love the verse "Cast all your anxieties on Him because He cares for you." 1 Peter 5:7. Pillow measures - 19x21.5 Dark denim back.
Swan Lake - My daughter and I visited the zoo one hot steamy day. Paint brushes in hand we intended to create but didn't for some reason. One of my photos from that day became this painting and on a very special "art night" the swans came to life. I have always had a thing for swans. I admire how they love. They are loyal, graceful, and fiercely feisty. Pillow Measures - 19x19. Dark denim back.

This 2.75" pewter cross necklace is stamped "Because He lives". We used to sing this song to our baby girls before bed at night as a lullaby prayer. So glad they have this Truth instilled in their hearts. The song brings instant comfort and it goes like this.
Because He lives... I can face tomorrow. Because He lives all fear is gone. And I know. I know He holds the future. Life is worth the living just because HE LIVES!
This necklace will include a free 5 x 7 "Covered" angel wing print with Psalm 91 written on the back. The artwork was painted by Becky Strahle. The cross is solid pewter and hangs on a brown leather cord 30" long. It comfortably fits over the head.
